So ugly. I wonder what the significance is? Was really hoping he'd go with 8.

Wore it for one season in Jr B. He also asked Gionta how much he thought it would cost to get 26 from Gorges and never got a reply, so he understood that as it's not for sale.

Never saw 72 coming... Weird number.

Was he a big Ron-Hextall-as-Nordique fan at the time? This is bizarre.

Not a bad choice. Who was the last player to wear the number?

I'm drawing a blank and am using too slow of a computer to research it, but did Carle see any time with the Habs?

EDIT: Nevermind. 3 games in 2009-10. Anybody a little more effective?

3 games in the 09-10 season.

According to the Habs website, no he was the only one to ever wear the 72.

I had the same reaction.

Weird number to chose. I guess 79 was already taken (birth year). 72 might be a sister or brother's birth year...

Too bad he's not a defenseman, he'd fit right in with Markov, Subban and Gill.

Yes... by Markov

However Cole said (as someone else did further up) that he had 72 in Junior B.
